A lightning diverter should be installed where the lead-out wire attaches to the fence. A lightning diverter at this location serves the dual purpose of diverting some of the initial energy surge to ground and also serves as a route of exit from the fence of the energy flow reversed by the induction coil. The Lightning Diverter has two terminals for attaching wires and leads from each terminal that are set with a wide enough gap to prevent the normal energizer voltage flow from arcing across, but close enough to allow a lightning voltage spike to jump easily across and pass to ground. The top terminal is attached to the uppermost electrified wire and the lower terminal to a ground rod. The lightning diverter ground must be separate from the energizer ground. If a common ground rod is used, the lightning spike can pass through the common ground system and return to the energizer potentially damaging the circuitry. It is recommended to install several lightning diverters through the fence system at lightning prone locations and where fences network together.
